SADAK 2 REVIEW
Director: Mahesh Bhatt
Starring: Sanjay Dutt, Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Jish
Written by: Mahesh Bhatt and Suhrita Sengupta
SADAK 2, is a revenge story where Alia’s character Aaraya
Technically the film is good. Cinematography by Jay Patel is worth mentioning and some scenes are captured beautifully by him. Editing of Sandeep Kurup is crisp. Production value is also satisfactory. Dialogues were too old school, felt more like a film of late 80’s and 90’s they could have been way better for today’s day and age. Music was also not up to the standards set by Vishesh Films.
The film largely lacks in writing, characters and the overall script are is too shabbily written. The film does have some fine moments of emotions, twists and turns which are too limited and makes the film rather boring as it does too little to keep one remain affix with the film.
Performances wise Sanjay Dutt does a super job; Alia Bhatt is good but nowhere close to her standards. Aditya Roy Kapoor is functional. Jishu Sengupta
As a director, Mahesh Bhatt does bring some of his vintage filmmaking charm to a few sequences but overall he is let down by his own script.
On the whole, SADAK 2 is dated. Although the film has some good moments but overall it feels like an opportunity missed.
